Why I Dance
I have always felt that ballet is the language of my soul. Through ballet I am able to synthesize my past, present, and ideas of the future, and then to leave it all on stage makes me feel free and liberated.
My Secret Talent
Classical Piano. My favorite composer is Claude Debussy, and I love playing his pieces.
Who I Admire
Anna Tikhomirova, First Soloist with the Bolshoi Ballet. She has a beautiful energy about her, and her sister was my teacher back in Los Angeles.
Get to Know Nadine Jenson
Nadine started ballet at the age of three in Camarillo, California. She trained with Clarissa Boeriu at All American Ballet for most of her youth, until she moved to Los Angeles and joined the conservatory program at the Marat Daukayev School of Ballet. During this time, she spent a summer at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow, RU, competed in Youth America Grand Prix, and did a variety of summer intensive programs, including one with the Los Angeles Ballet Company. Other teachers she attributes her success to are Giana Jigarhan, Maria Tikhomirova, Enton Hoxha, Stefan Wenta, Sasha Greschenko, Olga Tozyiakova, and more. Nadine is both excited and grateful to be in her first season with NMBC.
